    Are polish chickens sensitive to cold weather? The are so awesome with their funky hair I really want one. However, it can get really cold where I live. According to some websites they are sensitive to cold weather, but, I know some people who have had them. I don't want to put the chickens into misery.:idunno

    This article may be of assistance: Pickin a Chicken

    This is also a great article: How Much Room Do Chickens Need

    I do hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out. These three might be of interest to you at this stage:
    Topic of the Week - Getting Started, Keeping Chickens
    Topic of the Week - Keeping the Flock Safe from Predators
    Topic of the Week - Dogs and chickens

    If you would like to share Pictures and Stories of your flock when they arrive or your fur babies, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out ;)

    I breed polish and have never had a problem with the cold. Although I can't really say since in central Texas it never drops below 20. What variety were you thinking? Bantam or standard?
